Open call for submissions—Samhain Publishing Dragon anthology for Fall 2007
I’m excited to announce an open call for submissions for a new anthology I’m putting together for Fall 2007, a Dragon anthology tentatively titled I Dream of Dragons, which will consist of three novellas to be released individually as ebooks in the Fall 2007 and combined into one print title for 2008 release.
I am open to any romance genre, and am placing no qualifications on how dragons are involved in the story, because I don’t want to limit the possibilities. The only caveat is that the story must feature a dragon theme as integral to the story and it must be a romance. Submissions should be 20,000 to 30,000 words in length.
Submissions are open to all authors previously published with Samhain and authors aspiring to publish with Samhain. Submissions must be new material, previously published material will not be considered.
To submit, please include:
*For those authors currently contracted with Samhain: The first three chapters of your submissions, with a comprehensive 2-3 page synopsis. If you wish to submit the full manuscript, you are welcome to do so—full manuscripts are much easier to judge than partials and a synopsis.
*For authors not previously contracted with Samhain: The full manuscript (of 20,000 to 30,000 words) with a comprehensive 2-3 page synopsis. Please include a letter of introduction/query letter since we’ll be new to one another!
Submissions are open until March 2nd and final decision will be made by March 16th. As with all Samhain special projects, only one editor is involved so all submissions should be sent to me at angie AT samhainpublishing.com Please put Dragon Anthology Submission in the subject line.
I will send a message confirming receipt of your submission within 72 hours, so if you don’t receive a confirmation message, please email to confirm receipt.
I’m happy to answer questions about this anthology either on the Samhain Author loop, Samhain Café, Romance Divas forum or by private email. I’m very excited to see some great dragon submissions. !
